CALLING CAST MEMBERS

It’s the tops and Cole Porter’s Anything Goes is one of the greatest American musicals, a masterpiece of verbal and musical flippancy and is set to take centre stage at Beau Sejour Theatre in November 2018 as part of EVOKE Productions tenth anniversary celebrations.

The story concerns the madcap antics aboard an ocean liner bound from New York to London. We are introduced to Billy Crocker a stowaway in love with heiress Hope Harcourt, who is engaged to Lord Evelyn Oakleigh. Meanwhile nightclub singer Reno Sweeney and Moonface Martin aid Billy in his quest to win Hope.

Director, Chris Bougourd adds, “The complexity of Cole Porter’s best work sets him somewhat apart from other great songwriters. A Porter song is a luxury item expensively made and extravagantly rhymed. Porter created a world. It was a between-the-wars realm of drop-dead chic”.

The musical introduced such songs as Anything Goes, You’re the Top, Blow Gabriel Blow, Friendship and I Get a Kick Out of You.

The production, which has optical group Specsavers as its sole sponsor, will open on Monday 12 November and run until Saturday 17 November 2018. Six (6) performances with curtain-up at 7.30pm.

Auditions for principal roles/ensemble/dancers will take place at the Professor Shaw Centre, St Martins on Sunday 29 April and Sunday 6 May 2018 from 2.30pm.
